Dr. Shuman is an advocate for social justice, designs treatment to be neurodiversity affirming, practices therapy from an LGBTQ+ affirmative stance, and continually engages with anti-racist training and self-study. He has particular expertise in building self awareness about the function of traits that commonly overlap between OCD and a variety of forms of neurodivergence. He understands the role of intersectionality in personal experience with identity. He also is comfortable with treating OCD themes surrounding sexuality, gender, and race. Dr. Shuman will never use behaviorism in a coercive way or suggest that perpetual masking of symptoms is an acceptable treatment outcome.
Dr. Shuman has attended countless cultural competency trainings on a diverse array of topics. DEIA training and self-study is integral to competent psychotherapy, and Dr. Shuman gets a kick out of de-colonizing evidence based practice.
